It must be a wonderful thing to receive your holy habit just before Easter.
Over at Moniales, the Dominican Nuns share a video of a bit of celebrating the investitures of Sr. Deepa and Sr. Giang, now Sr. Veronica Marie and Sr. Joseph Maria, respectively. Very cute to see Sr. Veronica not quite used to responding to her new name. I guess that can take a while.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, we see a slideshow; three Sr. Maralisa, Sr. Julianna and Sr. Marie Rachel receive the habit of the Carmelites of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus of Los Angeles. These “active” Carmelites take the habit in the last few months of their novitiate, so they will be making their first vows in just a little while. The cake is adorable. Seems like an especially happy community. Their blog post is here.
